Character description

John E. Redmond (1856-1918): Irish politician. Unionist. An ally of Charles Stewart Parnell, he took over the Unionist cause after the disgrace and death of Parnell. He worked hard to negotiate "Home Rule" for Ireland, but the First World War caused Home Rule to be postponed. In the end, Ireland demanded independence instead. But Redmond, although he lived to see the disaster of the Easter Rising, died before the full-fledged war against England began; he did not live to see his hopes dashed by Partition, the Treaty, and the separation of Ireland from Great Britain.
